Karate Kick Off at MPHC


Our martial arts programs give students a chance to learn some of the basic elements karate has to offer. This discipline will help kids not only become more engaged in physical activity, but also helps teach them self-defense skills. Martial arts will also help individuals who participate become more focused and provide a terrific outlet for kids. These classes are not meant to promote fighting. Our focus is on instilling values such as discipline, becoming more self-aware and developing an ability to put mind over matter for our youth. All classes will be instructed by a certified and well trained karate instructor.

Please email Erin Wilkinson with any questions, or call 828 209 5015.
